Recipe by riffraff

The Adams lived next door to us all my life. They always had a beautiful garden and always shared the bounty. Mom and I recently started going through her "recipe drawer" and came across a handwritten card from Mrs. Adams with this recipe on it. I remember having this every summer. We love chow chow with our beans or mixed into deviled eggs or potato salad.
